Welcome to September everyone!!
I wish I could say it was cooling down in AZ but we just had two weeks or more of heat advisories that lasted multiple days sooooo we still melting over here hahaha I'm here today to talk about a new company I just found!
They're called Formulate and they are custom shampoo and conditioner wizards!
You take a simple hair quiz: type, length, heat treated, colored, etc and then tell them your hair goals: glossy, scalp health, UV protection, color last, etc and BAM! They create a one of a kind formula JUST for you!
You can choose up to 6 hair goals for your combo and a scent AND strength OF that scent, It was magical! I chose the Shoreline scent and it was AMAZING.
My hair goals were: Color Protection (hello purple hair), thermal protection (from AZ heat), glossy hair, nourish roots, and improve scalp health (I've been dealing with an itchy scalp for a few years now and it annoys me).
Here's a video I did talking about my experience and sometimes it's better to listen than read hahahaha
The formula may not have worked great for my hair BUT my scalp was much better! I loved working with this amazing company AND because they love you all so much, we've partnered to do a giveaway for one FREE set of shampoo and conditioner set! One person will win the free set but every entry will receive a discount for the products if you desire to try them!

Who here has an electric toothbrush?? I've had one for about a year or so and I love mine! And full disclosure: My mom gave it to me hahaha I wasn't going to pass up a FREE electric toothbrush ya know?
Then I saw Smile Brilliant came out with their own version! You guys know how much I LOVE their teeth whitening system, seriously the best one, and I was eagerly saving up my pennies to get their brush!
When they contacted me for a trial of their toothbrush, I kid you not I danced in the car! My kids thought I was NUTS hahaha **Post does contain affiliate links and I was given the product in exchange for a review, all opinions are 100% my own**
I love this toothbrush!!! I'm not saying it lightly either. I love this toothbrush, it is seriously awesome and designed so well to help your oral health!
We all know that electric toothbrushes are better for oral care than manual brushes which is why I grabbed my old one before my mom gave it away and it has dramatically helped my teeth. I had an Oral-B SonicCare toothbrush, and now with the CariPRO Ultrasonic Toothbrush my teeth have never been better. This brush comes with 5 modes of brushing! Did you even know that there could be MODES? I love especially that it comes with a "Sensitive" mode because some days my teeth are just extra sensitive and they need to be cleaned with a little less vigor.
One of the features is that when you turn it on, it stays on for 2 minutes with pauses every 30 seconds. It's designed this way to give each quadrant of the mouth the time and cleaning it needs to be fully cleaned! No more needing to sing the Happy BIrthday song or setting a timer for it; the toothbrush does all the thinking for you.
The battery life is amazing! I plugged it in and didn't need to recharge it for over a week! The toothbrush heads can be purchased separately as well so buying the actual toothbrush only once is required, then all you need are new heads! I like their designed heads because I felt like they get my WHOLE mouth clean. Sometimes with these tiny brush heads it's questionable if it's all getting cleaned or not.
Wanna know the best part? I'M GIVING ONE AWAY!! That's right friends, I'm giving away one FREE CariPRO Ultrasonic Toothbrush to one of you!! Click the link below to enter to win!!
If you have any other questions about the toothbrush that I didn't answer, check out their FAQs for some great info as well! And for those of you that don't want to wait to get your hands on one of these toothbrushes I have a discount code for you! 20% OFF the toothbrush which is HUGE guys!! Use code: ourhappilyeverafterblog20 Good luck to you all!!
So it's well-known around these parts that I am not a beauty expert. I mean I barely started wearing makeup at all just last year! But since beginning this "beauty journey" if you will, I have found a few things that I think are "Mom Hacks"!
First, Maskcara makeup
And no, I actually don't sell it hahaha so this is not a self plug or anything! I just happen to really love the product and I think it's one of the best hacks out there. It's essentially fool-proof and has a guide to help you. Plus it lasts forever as long as you apply it correctly and don't overdo your look. The point of Maskcara is to enhance your natural beauty, not mask it ;) (Get it, get it??)
Second, Maybelline Matte Ink Lip Colors
Influenster introduced me to these magic tubes of color and I love them soooooo much! They stay on through food, drink, sweat (mostly, there is a limit but it takes a lot!), AND you can put chapstick over it if you feel that they're getting dry (mine rarely do for reference)
Third, Smille Brilliant Teeth Whitening
Remember this post? Well seriously, its sooooo easy and fast to whiten your teeth! I can grab my favorite book, or whiten while I do laundry, dishes, cleaning. I've done it all while whitening my teeth hahaha My kids always know when I'm doing it too because I sounds funny with my "retainers" in!
Fourth, Micellar water!
This makeup remover stuff is magical!
I went through a bunch of different ones before I finally
found this one and it made my skin so soft!
Plus it takes everything off with minimal effort
and no scrubbing which is awesome.
I personally love the Garnier brand but I think most of them are super similar ;)
And because I love you so much,
Smile Brilliant is giving away another teeth whitening kit!!!
